I felt like I walked into my Grandma's guest room. The room was neat and tidy with everything in its place. The staff is friendly and Gilly's restaurant had good food and a nice environment (except the ladies in the bikinis). We stayed in the west tower. All I can say is it's time for an update!

My first room was 2629, a corner room in the East Tower. I couldn't get the room cool, so I started trying to change rooms on the morning I checked in. The front desk was so short staffed and overwhelmed that I couldn't get through to anyone. Finally, they answered and told me I needed to speak with housekeeping and... More

Stayed one night at super deal of $40. With tax and resort fee, it totaled less than $60. We were upgraded to a large suite which, although dated, was very comfortable with a king bed. I'm knocking this rating down because it took 45 minutes to check in - evidently others were taking advantage of the $40 deal. That was... More

A decent hotel. Older casino hotel. Friendly staff, lots of restaurants in the hotel, don't even need to leave the hotel if you don't want to. Best rooms East Tower as high as you can get to cut out the noise from the interstate and the railroad yard.

Visited tahoe on a budget with the whole family & decided to stay in Reno for some night time fun. Checked in around 10pm. Front desk was friendly... Upgraded us to a "nicer" room and higher floor which I appreciated since I got 2 adjoining rooms. I basically paid $50/per night/per room taxes & fees included. The Gift shop, cafe/Starbucks... More

The rooms were decent and comfortable. The drinks at the bar were some of the best prices, and they do not skimp on the alcohol! Unfortunately we didnt get to check out the pool, but our stay was overall great.

If you stay here you MUST, I repeat MUST, request the renovated tower East tower. Even if it costs you a little more. I didn't see the old rooms, but friends mentioned how much nicer our room was. Yes, it was a nice room, but it was what I would expect for $100/night. There is plenty of free parking East... More

As other reviewers noted, we booked this hotel mainly because it had the best value for the short notice we had in planning our once a year vacation. Was a little skeptical about what the rooms would look like in the west tower based on previous reviews, but honestly it is not bad at all. Yes the furniture is a... More

We had reserved another part of the hotel in Dec.for the Rockabilly Riot in June. That one was no longer availble. We were given a room in the west tower for the same price. It was still very close to our car. The west tower has not been remodeled lately. It was still very nice and the bed was great.... More
